ACF demands investigation on helicopter reportedly dropping supplies to bandits

By Newsie ED:-

Following the recent interception of a helicopter that was alleged to be dropping supplies to bandits, the ACF, Arewa Consultative Forum has called for open and transparent investigation into the claims.

According to the forum, a transparent investigation by the Buhari-led administration would clear any doubt and give a clear picture àside what is being speculated.

In a statement by the ACF National Publicity Secretary, Emmanuel Yawe, the forum believed that a full investigation on the issue would clear every doubt about the country’s security challenges.

While the forum criticized the Federal Government who they said slammed a ban on flights over the Zamfara state at the peak of the kidnap of students of the Jangebe Government Girls’ Secondary School, in the State, it also pointed out that its National Chairman, Chief Audu Ogbeh had issued a statement asking that the ban should be extended to other states where there were rumours that arms, foodstuffs and other supplies were being dropped for bandits by a mysterious helicopter.

According to ACF, “Today, there are various accounts that a helicopter that has been used to drop supplies for the criminals has been arrested. The accounts are rather confusing with the rather scandalous accusation that a former Head of State, General Abubakar Abdulsalami is the owner of the aircraft.”

The forum noted that even though General Abdulsalam has since dismissed the rumour that he owned the helicopter, there was need for investigation due to the sordid revelations in the media.

ACF is convinced that there is need for an open and transparent investigation on the orders of President and Commander in Chief, Muhammadu Buhari.

The forum believed that the result of the investigation would “clear whatever doubts there are about righting the country’s security challenges.”
